I am trying to get the total height of Beam (Nominal height + the thickness of Beam Covers) using the API in C++.
I have a beam with 25mm cover on each sides.
The nominal height and width as displayed on the settings dialog is 350mm, however, the total height and width i.e. height and width including the cover is 350+25+25=400mm.
I am currently using ACAPI_Element_GetMemo to get the element memo, and then using "elementmemo->beamSegments[index].assemblySegmentData.nominalHeight" to get the nominal height. It is extracting the nominal height correctly i.e.350mm.
However, I want to get either the cover thickness or the total height/width using the API. When I move my mouse over the same beam element, it shows the total height and width (i.e. 400 mm).
Is there any way to get the cover thickness or the total height/width using the API?
